‘Brass Eye’ two decades on: the unstoppable genius of Chris Morris | ShortList
Twenty years since we were all suddenly plunged into the braintanglia of rudemath, and with what shocking results.

(My autocorrect already has 'braintanglia'. I wonder why.)

"Oxide Ghosts" screenings | Michael Cumming | latest news
Today is the 20th anniversary of 1997. People did different things then, like watch Brass Eye on its original broadcast. Looks like I've missed the screening of this (and the York one), but there's still... um... Sheffield? Halifax?

Church of England 'an enormous waste of everyone's time' | The Daily Mash
Yes it's a parody, or a satire, or something. That doesn't mean that it's not 100% true and more incisive than anything you're likely to pay money to read this week.

Linux vs. Windows | Twenty Sided
"I’ve installed both and I’ve used both, and I’m ready to offer Linux some constructive criticism. It’s a good attempt at an operating system, but they need to make some changes if they want to beat Windows." Eeeexcellent.

Plot Holes in World War II | Straight Dope
"Apparently we're supposed to believe that in the middle of the war the Germans attacked their allies the Russians, starting an unwinnable conflict on two fronts, just to show how sneaky and untrustworthy they could be? And that they diverted all their resources to use in making ever bigger and scarier death camps, even in the middle of a huge war? Real people just aren't that evil."

The Christmas Sermon 2012 – “On Not Believing In Canada”
"Well, I do believe in Canada, a bit, but I don’t worship Canada! Canada doesn’t bloody ask me to come to the Canadian Embassy every Sunday when the cartoons are on telly, and sit through a two hour sermon about Canada, then fill in colouring books about Canada and the Son of Canada, does it? Nobody makes me sing songs about Canada, or gives me a book of stories about Canada instead of a comic for my birthday! In general, I don’t allow my belief in Canada to affect my life!"
